Modi speaks of 'freeing Muslim women from injustices'

Bargarh: The Odisha unit of BJP broadcasted Prime Minister Narendra Modi's radio programme "Mann Ki Baat" in all the 270 booths of bypoll-bound Bijepur Assembly constituency in the district here on Sunday. He said, "People born in 21st century will gradually begin to become eligible voters from 1st of January, 2018". The PM appealed to the youth to register themselves as voters. "Indian democracy welcomes our 21st century "New India Voters", said the PM. Recounting the inspirational story of Anjum Bashir Khan Khattak, the topper of Kashmir Administrative Service examination, Modi said, "He actually extricated himself from the sting of terrorism and hatred and topped in the Kashmir Administrative Service Examination".

He also said: "It is now time that a system is created where newest development opportunities are easily accessible for the youth of New India as they turn 18", assured Modi in his radio address.

Referring to #Positive India, using which he earlier had asked people to share their positive experiences, PM Modi listed feedbacks which spoke on how various government schemes had improved their lives.

He also focussed on the Swachh Bharat mission and said that cleanliness surveys will be conducted from January 4 to 10, 2018 to evaluate achievements in cleanliness level in our urban areas.

PM Modi also said that August 15, a mock parliament can be organised in Delhi where youth elected from every district of India can participate.

New India will be free from poison of casteism, communalism, terrorism and corruption; free from dirt and poverty. "Peace, Unity and Goodwill" will be the driving forces for New India, said Modi.

- As it is said in India- "Seva Parmo Dharma" (Service is one's prime duty), let us rekindle this spirit of service in our hearts.

"Almost 1300 Muslim women, from Kerala to North India, have applied to travel on Haj without a male guardian after we have scrapped that rule. The Republic Day will be celebrated with leaders of all 10 ASEAN countries coming to India as Chief Guests".
